Stacking the Shelves (#267)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews, in which bloggers share the books and swag they've received in the past week!

So, what did I get in the week of Sunday, January 28th to Saturday, February 3rd?

(all links to Goodreads are provided!)

In the mail:

Thank you so much for the trade, Nikki! I am beyond excited to add this to my collection! If anyone has an ARC of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer that they might want to get rid of, please hit up yours truly! ;)

From NetGalley:

The Last King (The Kings, #1)  Blood Type (Blood Type, #1)

Thank you, Forever and Loveswept! I adore Katee's books and am excited about this new series. Blood Type is completely new to me but I am loving vampire romances so this sounds like a good one.

A post shared by Alyssa (@theeaterofbooks) on

This week was a frustrating one for me, both personally and professionally. I lost a ring that was special to me - most likely long gone, since I lost it at work (I'm pretty sure I was drying my hands and it got caught in a paper towel). A friend made me feel a little annoyed and unsettled and it's bothering me, even though it's a small thing. On a positive note, I'm looking forward to this weekend! It's a big one here in the States and I really need the time away from certain things. Have a great weekend, everyone!


  1. I really enjoyed Sightwitch! Putting up my review this weekend :)

  2. Sorry to hear about the rough week! And the loss of your ring. That's awful. :( Hope you are able to enjoy your weekend though. I almost forgot about the Super Bowl this weekend- it snuck up on me I guess!

    Both Sightwitch and Umbertouched look great.

  3. I try not to get too attached to things, but I've gotten almost physically ill over losing something special to me so I feel bad about your ring. Tough situation when a friend disappoints. Hopefully, it is something that can heal for you.

    Neat that you found an arc you were wanting for your collection. Oh, a new Katie Roberts. Hope you like it.

    Have a great weekend, Alyssa!

  4. OMG, so sorry about your ring, especially since it was important to you. :( And I totally hope you and your friend are okay. Here's to more positivity this week, lovely!

  6. Nice trade. That is a book I have been meaning to read. Hope this week shapes up better. Happy reading and Superbowl-ing ;-)

  7. I'm so sorry about your ring! Hope you have a more positive week next week <3

  9. Sorry to hear you had a tough week. I hope you have a fun weekend to make up for it. Linde wrote a vampire romance? Look at that. I have read some of her contemporaries, but I had no idea. Enjoy!

  10. I'm so sorry to hear about the frustrating week and lost ring :( Shame, Alyssa, I'm so sorry. That's horrible.

    I hope you've had a lovely weekend. Have a great week :)

  11. Bring Me Their Hearts, makes me think of the movie with Johnny Depp - Alice in Wonderland. Great haul. I want to read By A Charm & A Curse. I am heading over to see your review!

    Have a great week of reading!


  12. Looks like you had a pretty good week. Hope you enjoy reading your books.

  13. I'm sorry you lost your ring, and about your friend. I get that. It doesn't matter if it's something big or small, it can still suck.

    I hope you have a lovely weekend.


  14. YAY those are amazing books!!!! I'm so sorry you lost your ring :( I lost one the other day and it was special to me too, I can totally understand why you feel that way. I hope you had an amazing weekend!

  20. So sorry about your ring, Alyssa -- losing something special like that is always hard. Here's hoping this week is better for you. And I never would've guessed that Blood Type is a vampire novel from the cover!
